I running 6 marathons in 6 days this Sunday and just wondered how many days before should I carb loads 2-3 days or more?

:)

Provided you aren't restricting your carbohydrate (or total calorie) intake in line with the reduced training, there's no need to carb load from a long way in advance. A really easy week with a carbohydrate-rich diet should stand you in good stead. Refuelling between runs is possibly even more important in a multi-day endurance event.

I hope you enjoy your marathons.

Got something to say?
